November 2000 I rode on a mountain just north of Albuquerque in Cibola National Forest and Trails. We went to bed in our camper Thanksgiving night and woke up the next morning to 8 of wet snow. We had a hard time getting out of there. A four-wheel drive is nice to have. Our picture is of the Magdalena Trail sign west of Socorro. I hope you can read the words on the sign, it tells of a road 10 miles wide covering 200 square miles. It was used from 1885 to 1971 to drive sheep and cattle to and from the railroad at Magdalena


Update: Cedar Crest post office May 2004.

Picture of the wagon was taken on Saturday after the Apache Land Ride on the Continental Divide, about 40 miles east of Gallup, New Mexico at the expressway exit.
